Getting Better

(2010, 11 minutes, colour, DVD)

This short cartoon is mainly for people who have learning disabilities. It shows what to expect when you go to the doctor’s, or the clinic, or have an eye test, or see the dentist.

The DVD contains six stories about people with health problems. They all have learning disabilities, and one is a wheelchair user. Sometimes they need to ask questions. Sometimes they need to stand up for themselves. They all make sure they get fair treatment, and find out how to look after their health.

All the voices on the soundtrack are those of actors with learning disabilities.
There is a booklet in the pack.

GETTING BETTER was made in consultation with Mencap, CHANGE, and the National Health Service. Produced with funding from the Department of Health Third Sector Investment Programme.
